Installation via USB

I just got some new hardware for my new (or overhauled) vdr. (More on that later…) I wanted to try out yavdr and needed a cd drive for the installation. I looked in my basement for an old drive, finally found one in an old IBM Intellistation and got it out of there. Then I burned the cd, very sloooowly, so the old drive can read it, found a PATA cable to connect the drive and booted. Half through the boot process the drive couldn’t read the cd anymore… All that hassle, just because I seem to be too oldschool to think of usb drives. Since I already got the iso image on my computer, it took around 3 minutes to use usb-creator to create a bootable usb drive. Too easy for me I suppose…
